We came across a solitary example of this "migrant" orchid a few years ago -  and when we visited this site again last week - it was nice see this introduced species taking root, with several plants in full bloom - including possible hybrids with Ophrys sphegodes..

Composite image merged from 8K video.
Nikon Z9 with Irix 150mm macro.

Thanks for the visit - have a great WE.

This is a beautiful capture of an orchid migrating in to that new site. Wonderful image Sinuhe, with the large view showing remarkable details.
Make your life spectacular!
